I'm back with a new review for TSA: NMH! The review can be found here.

The short version of the review is that it's a gigantic let down, with an uninspired story, bad level design, and combat that gets old quickly.

What did you think of the return of Travis Touchdown?

@turtlethetaffer: I guess you've confirmed what most of the other review scores have said. It's disappointing to know the game gets old quick and isn't that fun to play.

I was thinking of picking it up sometime, but I'm still not sure. If I ever do, it'll probably be once it's $20 or less I guess. But I might be at the point where I won't have time for it.

I would say if you can find it in the 15-20 dollar range and are a huge NMH/ Suda51 fan, it's worth it for completion's sake. But it definitely got old fast for since it lacked the attitude and unpredictability that made the first two so great.

I thought it was garbage, and I couldn't motivate myself to finish it. I'm glad I was able to return it, and get Resident Evil 2 instead. It got boring and tedious quickly, the combat was so oversimplified and shallow, it lacked all the charm and fun of the first two games, and it felt badly designed.

Thanks for the review @turtlethetaffer. I was in two minds about trying this one out, but having read though your experiences I think I'll wait for a real No More Heroes game to come out instead.

@mandzilla: Happy to help. I don't think anything really happens in it that will affect the overall story if a theoretical third one comes out.

@princessgomez92:I struggled hardcore finishing it. I want to support Suda so he gets a budget to create another proper NMH game or something new, but damn if this game wasn't tough to get through.
